This week the Bay Area entered its fourth month of shelter-in-place. And it's a confusing time: infection rates are climbing in some counties, just as local resturants are welcoming back diners.Even summer camps, casinos and malls are reopening.

 

At the same time, cities and counties are opening up to new ideas –– like defunding their police. And in a world that looks totally different than it did just 90-plus days ago, the path forward remains murky.

 

For the past three months we’ve been checking in with people from all around the Bay Area to see how the pandemic is affecting their day-to-day lives. It’s the Quarantine Diaries.

Past seasons focussed on an intersection in the middle of San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood, an intersection in the middle of Google’s Mountain View campus and conceptual intersections at 2019’s Burning Man.
